A cast plaster relief depicting classical figures with a tethered bullCast at LASSCO Three Pigeons by Peter Hone. This relief plaque was cast from a Coade stone original – we have two similar available. Peter Hone bought the plaques from Miles D’Agar at the Furniture Cave some years ago. They are now in the collection of Sir Jacob Rothschild, We can’t find reference to the original manufacture of this design at Coade. They are undoubtedly drawn from a classical source – they look to be part of a Panathanaic frieze – and bear similarities to the Coade frieze at Ickworth House in Suffolk. The frieze designs at Ickworth were drawn from Flaxman’s illustrations to Homer. Research continues.
